Description Nathan Zachary (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-02-14 18:54:49 UTC
lxde-base/lxappearance (both stable [0.2.1] and testing [0.4.0]) fail when trying to set an icon theme in bz2 format.  They work when extracted manually into ~/.local/share/icons, but they fail with the following error when using the LXappearance GUI install button:

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

(lxappearance:27137): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_utf8_collate: assertion `str2 != NULL' failed

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LXappearance
2. Go to the "Icons" tab
3. Click "Install"
4. Browse for an icon theme compressed with bz2

Actual Results:  
The error shows up (when launched from the terminal).  If the application is launched from a menu, it gives no feedback as to the problem.

Expected Results:  
The icon theme should be installed via the GUI in either .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 format.

The error doesn't occur when using a .tar.gz archive.

Not a Gentoo-related problem.  Located upstream bug:
